Want A Bestselling Book That Actually Makes You Money?

A book is your fast track to greater authority, reaching a wider audience, and making residual income.


Book writing and publishing can be incredibly overwhelming and confusing. Just one missing link can derail a book’s success.

On top of that, many creatives who are great writers often dread the marketing and promotion side of the process.

To top it all off, a single book, even one that sells many copies, often isn’t a big money maker unless you know how to leverage it. There are many authors who publish a book, and then are left scratching their heads wondering why nothing has changed.

There’s a shortcut to success. How helpful would it be to have a 7x bestselling author who’s sold over 20,000 books in today’s market guiding you?

The training and coaching I’ll provide will give you step-by-step plans to follow, simplify the process to make it doable, and show you clever tactics that allow you to sell books on autopilot so you can spend more time doing what you love and less time promoting.
